      OMG ! I made this recipe for Greek Easter - it's my husbands favorite dessert - he said "WOW"! Then he proclaimed "It tastes Greek!" - which I took as a compliment because he is Greek and I am not. He said it was the best he's ever had. Thanks Evelyn!

      I made a greek dinner last night. We had this for dessert. It was very good. It wasn't difficult to put together. I love the lemony flavor. I added a cinnamon stick to the syrup recipe. Will definetly make again!!
